I'm outta here guys

I hate to tell you guys this, but we bought a newer truck and it's not a diesel. We've had the truck in my signature for 4 years now and put 60,000 miles in it. Thanks to everyone here who has helped me keep the old beast in action!

Our upgrade is a one owner 2007 2500HD 6.0. And after looking around for awhile I tell you what, extended cab long beds are few and far between on newer truck! (Newer means anything past 1996 to me haha) We got the 6.5 all spit shined and ready to sell soon.

Congrats. How do they compare power wise? Like the looks of the old truck better.

I haven't towed the horse trailer with it yet, but I'll report back after we get the licensing sorted out. No lack of power empty though!

In my experience, the 6.5 and 6.0 are pretty comparable in stock format for towing. I was trying to do a post about it last week but my session timed out (long post).
